Obama only president in 68 years not to honor D-Day fallen

Occasionally, there is an event, a moment in time, where an individual does something that is highly definitive of that individual. Sometimes, it happens in a moment of duress or exigent circumstances, when someone rises to an occasion. Sometimes, the circumstances are not exigent at all, but a person’s true character comes out.

With presidents’ every move being scrutinized, it is perhaps easier to find such moments, or possibly even to read too much into them. However, in the case of Barack Obama, we seem to have an inordinate amount of very clear ones.

Case-in-point is this photo from before he was even president:


How much do you have to detest your own country not to put your hand over your heart for the national anthem or the pledge of allegiance? So much that you are unwilling to fake it, even when running for office in that country? Some things just say a lot about a person.

Alan Caruba, writing in Family Security Matters, points out another such example:

If you want to know how President Obama feels about the U.S. military, consider that in all the years since D-Day 1945 there have been three occasions when a President failed to go to the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed during the Invasion.

The occasions were:
1. Barack Obama 2010
2. Barack Obama 2011
3. Barack Obama 2012

For the past 68 years, all Presidents, except Obama, have paid tribute to the fallen soldiers killed on D-Day. This year, instead of honoring the soldiers, he made a campaign trip on Air Force 1 to California to raise funds for his reelection.

Barack Obama is so ideological and detests American power so much, he’s not even willing to fake patriotism and love of country for appearances’ sake. This tells you much of what you need to know about the man.
